Did not have breakfast, but did have dinner in room and service was great and steak dinner was delicious.
Being somewhat limited in walking ability was disappointed that ice machines were not readily available and within short walking distance and drink vending machines were not available making it necessary to use their limited choice of drinks provided in room refrigerator or go to bar or restaurant also at some walking distance from room.
Very comfortable and felt like a resort.
The hot water seemed to have a sulphur smell
I loved the garden! It was so beautiful. The room was gorgeous and extremely clean. Staff was great!
I didn't like the fact that if we smoked on the balcony then we would be charged $250. I simply was bothered by it because it is outside.
The grounds were peaceful and unusual, with soothing and calming water features - the koi pond with free koi food was fun. Front desk staff were helpful and courteous. The poolside restaurant was good and also very well priced for a hotel restaurant. Truffle fries were a great snack, and breakfast was delicious. The pool was heated and just the right temp. We had a suite which was well-priced for what we got. The room was sizeable and an added bonus - the minifridge snacks were totally reasonable - $2.00 for a soda, $8.00 for a mini-split of prosecco - unheard of! Close driving to Standford Shopping Center, Standford campus and downtown. Very relaxing hotel.
There were not enough pool lounge chairs by the pool - but perhaps this was because the pool was in hot demand as it was very warm while we were there.
Dog park was wonderful. Restaurant food was consistently delicious.
